FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the equilibrium pressure of N2 given the following equilibrium reaction:

2NO (g) ⇌ N2 (g) + O2 (g)

When dealing with equilibrium and Kc:

Kp → equilibrium units are in atm
Kp is an equilibrium expression:

Kp=productsreactants

only aqueous and gaseous species are included in the equilibrium expression
▪ the coefficient of each compound in the reaction equation will be the exponent of the pressure in the equilibrium expression


Given:    

Initial pressure:

NO = 26.1 atm
